    They can show some personal responsibility and not get pregnant. Make an adult decision on what is important to them. Child, or career?

    Other: none should be forced to do so and no employees should have to pay for that coverage if they arent pregnant/getting pregnant.

    So you believe we should set up a national system funded by a payroll tax? Rosa DeLauro has in the past introduced legislation that would provide up to 12 weeks of paid leave through a fund in the Social Security Administration, paid for by contributions from employees and employers of 0.2 per cent of wages. Do you support something like that?

    Not getting pregnant is not the same thing as getting an abortion.

    Why do you want to do that? I don't see why you want to give the money away. I don't see why you want to take it away from consumers and exports. And if you want to give the handout, I don't know why you want someone else than the guys that want to give the handout namely the taxpayer.
    But you might be right that it should come out of payroll tax and not total tax.

    What I decide to provide my employees in pay and benefits is my business and my decision.

    Forcing people to provide other people certain benefits is civilized? Strange.
